Saw an Austrian flick, The Wall (not related to Pink Floyd) on Netflix about a woman in the Austrian Alps who finds out there's an invisible wall surrounding her and she can't pass around it so she learns to hunt, raise crops and care for livestock to survive for a few years, summer, winter, etc.. Good flick.. Some subtitles, but narrator, the woman is in English.. The narration is her diary of the events as they unfold.

Nanjing! Nanjing! (2009) -- 10/10.

Probably slightly historically innacurate since it's about the Nanjing Massacre, and filmed by the Chinese but still very powerful. The war scenes are powerful, the terror, drama, and emotional turmoil.

I saw I, Frankenstein, which was obviously an Australian made film, though starred a USA star, and an Australian chick, who was in Chuck, who normally pretends to be American, but this time was pretending to be British, because .... erm... Bill Nighy was in it.

The film was the normal Christian crap model of the world, with souls going to hell. 3/10

...Mythology can be amusing, you know, if you look past what kind it is and see the concepts behind it. I saw that movie and only rate it 7/10 because it was too short; otherwise it'd be 8/10 or even 8.5/10. The plot felt like it was advancing too quickly.

If you want to see a good Indian film, Karthik Calling Karthik is very good, from an atheist horror movie perspective, without buying into religious paradigms. Unfortunately, I can't tell you why, because it will totally wreck your enjoyment of it. Just watch it without reading any reviews.

It has Deepika in it, who is prettier than nearly anything else that walks around in Bollies.

Uh... Any subtitles available? I don't speak Hindi.

There would be, It's not an obscure film. Depends upon your source of it.

Blackfish     -     worth watching

About Seaworld, Sealand, and the captivity of Orca whales, and the deaths of trainers.

Here's the free link.

It occurs to me based on what the movie reveals, that it would make an evolutionary sense that many of these animals evolving in the sea would be so very much smarter than we can understand.

I enjoyed The Warrior's Way (2010) but, apparently, I'm the only one who did.

I just watched Air Doll 2009, which is a Japanese movie about a sex doll that comes alive and roams around the neighborhood, and gets a job at the local video store. The thing which is not totally explained in this movie, is how her owner could not notice that she was more lifelike, but the people at the video store thought she was human, until she punctured herself. I suppose it could be said that her owner wouldn't have noticed if she was a real human. It was a tad on the slow side, but worth a 6/10.

I now propose to watch Bring Me The Head of The machine Gun Woman. My partner is away, so I have to watch movies that she would fall asleep in.

A Good Day to Die Hard

3/10

The movie is just plain boring and nearly nonsensical.  The decisions that the characters make at every turn are so confused that suspension of disbelief is all but impossible.  And I tend to give the Die Hard franchise significant leniency in that regard - I sorta enjoyed the 3rd Die Hard movie, and I was one of those weirdos that thoroughly enjoyed Live Free or Die Hard (mostly because Tim Olyphant always has a great screen presence).

The 3 outta 10 is mostly due to the occasional one-liner that hit the mark and the fact that it was only like 90 minutes long.

I'm unfamiliar with that one, but that title immediately brings to mind Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia:

Beg, Borrow or Steal (1937) -- 7/10.

Frank Morgan vehicle. Sort of a twist to the 1933 film "Lady for a Day[1]"; in that film an old lady who gave up a daughter years ago but has been corresponding with her of recent times but telling her she's a wealthy woman when she is not. In "Beg, Borrow or Steal" Morgan plays a con man who hasn't seen his daughter in 15 years and so when they meet he schemes his way around so she won't find out he's a con man.

The "Lady for a Day" is much better but this one ain't too bad.

 1. 10/10

I'm unfamiliar with that one,

It would be best to stay unfamiliar with that one. It starts in that refreshingly C movie porn style, sort of way, and almost managed to redeem itself. I couldn't figure out why they changed the colour spectrum so badly, that sunlight on cars looked yellow. 4/10 for low budget tits.

Tonight I watched Blended 2014, which is a Drew Barrymore - Adam Sandler reprise of 50 First Dates (similar to You've Got Mail vs Sleepless in Seattle). It was relatively entertaining, except that thinking about Adam Sandler kissing anyone, gives me the heebees. 6.5/10

The best rom com I have seen lately, is The Other Woman (2014), which relies a lot on the acting skills of Cameron Diaz, and Leslie Mann, to deliver many warped jokes. 7/10

Something interesting I saw tonight was a David Attenbouroughhgr documentary, in the "Natural Curiosities" series, s02e06, "Shocking Senses". Near the end of the episode, he explains, with an especially large smile on his face, that a particular flower he has rigged up to a sound device is resonating with an electric charge, when it has a full load of pollen and nectar, and that it is also negatively charged, near the top, so that when the positively charged bee comes along, the pollen leaps onto it. He then explains that after the nectar has been unloaded, the flower stops oscillating, and the other bees know that it has delivered its payload.

It didn't like something in my last post; maybe C+ ... nope. No idea. I had to post it piecemeal.

That sounds like one of those movies that attempts to forcibly put itself in the 'so bad it's good' category.

Coincidences abound, as I was watching that exact episode of Natural Curiosities last night[1].  If you haven't seen the rest of the series, it's quite intriguing.
 1. Well, watching again.  Attenborough programming is some of my favorite background TV fodder.

The Iceman - 8/10
Michael Shanon plays serial killer/ hit man Richard Kuklinski.  Based on actual person.  Excellent performances.  Wynona Ryder is still quite fetching and puts in a very good performance.


Kings of Summer - 6/10
coming of age story about a kid and dad with a screwed up dynamic.  so the kid and his friends build a house in the woods and stay there for month.  well done with some funny parts, but completely predictable. No surprises here.  Megal Mullally was very funny as was Nick Offerman (of Parks & Recreation).  Moises Arias was interesting, but I seriously question where his career is headed.  The dude is 20 years old, 5' 1" and looks weird as hell.

I have to say I'm sick of 'action' movies all with the same exact plot, Tough guy spends two hours kicking untold number of asses despite being shot, beaten, run over by train, drowned and missing eye then gets to fuck the hottie..
Please, someone tell me I'm not the only one tired of this shit?  :-\

I just watched the movie length pilot of Defiance, which is a last year sci-fi series. I tried to identify what it's similar to, but they've played it safe and mixed every sci-fi up into one series. On the good side, it has Julie Benz, and Grant Bowler, an Australian/NZ lead, who is fairly convincing, and not chosen just because they were filming in Australia, but Ontario.

This website claims that Julie Benz had plastic surgery that turned her into Julie Bowen. (Not sure for how long, because I posted that they were an idiot.)

Will it get better?  8.5/10 for the first ep.
